The premise of this book is interesting and drew me in. It's the late 1800s in the American West, but it's set in an alternate reality. The Flu killed a large portion of the population and what resulted was a society where producing more people is key. Women are valued only for their ability to produce babies, and those who are barren are labeled as witches and persecuted. The main character, Ada, is run out of her town and is accepted into a group of outlaws based on her knowledge of midwifery and medicine.

Unfortunately, despite the clever premise, the execution was not to my reading taste. The plot was nonsensical and the characters didn't have any heart. Their relationships with each other didn't ring true. I quickly lost interest in the outcome and ended up reading just to finish.

This book has gotten a lot of great press and many people seem to have liked it. So if it sounds interesting, give it a go and I'll be curious to see what you think. But it was definitely not for me. ( )

On one hand, if you're looking for a Western romp with a modern feel, this fits the bill. On the other, I found myself enjoying it less when I didn't just read it at surface level due to the inconsistencies and plot holes. I didn't love the ending, but it also wasn't the worst.

I do want this new Western spin to become a thing though because it really was a fun read. ( )

I don't think I've read anything like this before. The different take on the Hole in the Wall Gang sort of took me by surprise. I don't remember what the blurb said when I initially read it and I've thought of a hundred books since then. My remembery isn't so good...

I have mixed feelings about certain aspects of the story but, overall, I enjoyed it and it made me think.

4.5 rounded up. ( )

I liked this book but I didn’t like it as much as I wanted. It felt a little rushed to me and I wanted to know more about the other members of the gang, more about the interesting alternate history presented by the author. It would make a great movie, I think, or a really kick-ass television show. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman for the new millennium. ( )

The latest foray comes from Anna North, a reporter for Vox. Her new novel, “Outlawed,” stirs up the western with a provocative blend of alt-history and feminist consciousness. The result is a thrilling tale eerily familiar but utterly transformed....What’s most unsettling, though, is how similar so much remains to the position women long endured in America’s actual history. In “Outlawed,” marriages are celebrated for their fecundity, and mothers of lots of children enjoy considerable social power. But with medical science stuck in its earliest stages, wives bear the full blame for infertility. Although popular opinion is in flux between biology and magic, miscarriages are widely believed to be the work of witches....In North’s galloping prose, it’s a fantastically cinematic adventure that turns the sexual politics of the Old West inside out. But if this is a legendary story, it’s a legend with its own idiosyncratic and highly satisfying ending. I won’t say anything more — except that these women, as you might expect, don’t ride off into the sunset. They get down to work.
